Great weather,lot of things to get done,one was to get the saw going! Time to cut some frame blanks. We got some Mulberry,Apple,Cocobolo,Spalted Sweet Gum. The smaller Apple blanks are looking like they will be Pocket Shooters. I also have a really hard to find piece of Dogwood(not shown) 2"s thick x 4 1/2"s wide x 18" long. You rarely find a piece of Dogwood lumber with those dimensions. The tree hardly ever grows that big to get a chunk that size. I picked it up on E-Bay a few years ago on a lucky winning low bid. These will be special frames. Flatband

With those blanks and your skills some lovely catapults are gonna leave your workshop pretty soon.

I reckon that spalted sweet gum'll be a winner.

I'd love to see a pic of the dogwood too if poss?
